My guess would be that the socket is getting distorted in some fashion at full lock, as there are no metal connections to be made there. Or, there's a break in a wire that only shows itself when twisted to that locked position. Beyond that, I'd say a poltergeist...

I was thinking the same about possible distortion. I'll swap it with the driver's side and see if I can replicate the behavior. The driver's side was replaced as well.
is the new socket genuine or cheap chinese rubbish
I've learned that lesson on my own and by other's people's misfortune over the years. Pay once, cry once, do it right the first time.
